GAME FISHING with AMBITION CHARTERS
Port Stephens and Ambition Game Fishing Charters are synonymous during the Summertime…come me join me from mid-January until mid-March for some marlin fishing Port Stephens action!
EAST AUSTRALIA CURRENT
The Fishing on the East Coast of New South Wales is divided into fishing seasons which are basically aligned with the seasons of the year. What happens offshore relates to these seasons and are dependant on the meanderings of the East Australia Current. The East Australia current, unlike other currents, is a series of giant eddies with smaller spin-off eddies. These spin-off eddies are fickle and move down the coast at their own rate affected by local weather as well as the vagueries of the larger ‘El Ninio’ and ‘La Nina’ cycles.
All fish are restricted to water within a temperature range particular to them i.e. within their comfort zone. Baitfish and their predators migrate up and down the coast in these currents which on most SST charts are quite apparent and give us an idea of where to go fishing. What is not so apparent are the smaller spin-off eddies which trap the baitfish and their predators. The only way we Game Fishers can find the spin-offs is by getting out there and looking for these pots of gold.
